On June 11 at 9:30am EDT we hosted an in-depth discussion about China s financial opening, particularly the opportunities and challenges for foreign investors. Questions tackled by the panelists included: Is China on track to lift equity caps for foreign holdings of financial institutions? How to compare QFII and Stock Connect as entry channels? What opportunities and risks does one find in China s bond market? Are A-shares a good diversification for global investors?

These and other questions were tackled by Gene Ma, IIF Head of China Research, who moderated the event, which featured: Mr. Zhongbao Guo, Managing Director, GTJA Securities; Mr. Uwe Michel, Executive Vice President and Head of Asia Division, Allianz Group; Ms. Helen Qiao, Greater China Chief Economist and Head of Asia Economics, Bank of America; and Mr. Tiger Cong, Head of Capital Markets, CICC.
